Enjoyed hiking and scrambling through all of the rock and cave formations. Unfortunately, this State Park is easily accessible, and as a result, we found significant amounts of litter (some of which we were able to pick up) and defacement of trees/rocks. Definitely worth a look, but be aware the trail markers are a bit confusing, and please leave no trace during your visit!

Great I loved it. You can do easy or climb rocks which is harder.

The trail was too boring to follow so my friends and I just found some deer paths to follow it was awesome but dangerous.

I love this place, I see it more as an adult playground than an actually hiking trail. You can climb on things and explore dark watery caves. The trail isn't marked very well, but it doesn't really matter, it's not a huge place. It's not a place to bring small children, people have died here. Instead, bring waterproof boots, some good pants and maybe a flashlight. It's really a beautiful place to see during mid October.

Wonderful trail; no lengthy preamble from the parking lot to the trailhead—the action starts right away. Lots of fun scrambling over, under, and between rocks. On the red (difficult) trail, some crevices are too narrow to pass through with a backpack (or child) on your back. Oh, and the red-trail markers just disappeared at (what I assumed is) the end.
